Depression? How Massage Therapy can Help.

Seasonal Blahs? Overwhelmed?

We’ve all had days where we feel sad or blue. Nobody can be happy all of the time, and changes in mood, feelings of sadness sometimes, are perfectly normal. For some people, however, these feelings are more persistent and severe, interfering with everyday activities, lowering energy levels and interrupting sleep, for example.

When these feelings begin to take over and noticeably change a person’s quality of life, seeing a mental health professional—and getting a depression diagnosis—can be the first step in getting the help they need.

Now, people are also beginning to better understand how a combination of treatment options can be beneficial, and massage therapy is showing some promise in helping people better handle this condition.

Depression? How Massage Therapy can Help.

“Weekly sessions would be a good place to start. Then, depending on the response to treatment, that schedule could be adjusted as deemed necessary.

Remember, depression isn’t just mental health issues — some of the symptoms manifest physically, too.

“ The physical experience of massage can restore the feeling of living in one’s body again instead of being lost in one’s head.”

There’s also the potential that—similar to chronic pain — some of the value of massage therapy for people with depression comes from interrupting the pattern of symptoms on a regular basis.

“Each time one interrupts the pattern and experiences calm, it’s easier to remember what it’s like to live in a more normal state, gives one hope that it is possible,”

As we continue to learn more about depression, the ways in which this condition can be treated are also expanding—and massage therapy is showing some real promise in being a good addition to the already existing treatment options.
